April showers bring.. new breastfeeding bags!

OK, well it wasn’t raining because we live in Arizona. But it was beautiful weather for our bag stuffing event this past Saturday. We got there early to get a Ramada and set up for the fun to begin. Seriously, this is the best part of this job!

Meredith and her two daughters came to help stuff and to add a flyer and a fruit snack into the bag. She runs the Baby Boot Camp in South Chandler and South Gilbert. Heather, Myrna and Tanya were there too with their families. Heather and Tanya even donated the disposable nursing pads you will find in the bags. Thank you very much ladies! They were super fast stuffers and within an hour (with some nursing breaks) they had 200 bags stuffed. Here’s a little peek at what’s inside the April AZ Breastfeeding Bag:

Behind the scenes: a bag stuffing

Our bags are filled with love (and other things that moms will like)

Here’s a quick recap of our afternoon stuffing bags. I will be writing a longer post for each item that we put in our bags so be sure to comment below if you have any questions about a particular item that you see!

We believe that moms can breastfeed without any help- but it’s nice to see some of the products and services that are offered in case you feel like you need help. We try to add only things that are helpful to breastfeeding moms in Arizona. We do sell five advertising spots in our bags for a donation to our project. Comment, email or facebook message us if you want to be featured in our awesome AZ Breastfeeding Bag!

Also, of course we had a nursing break!!

Thank you Sasha and Holly for filling all 200 bags today! These are going to Babymoon Inn, Morning Star OB, The Birth Haven, St Joseph Center for Women’s Health, Freedom and the Seed Midwifery, a few doulas and individual mailers. If you would like to order bags please use our order form on “the bags” page or send us an email or a message.

If you want to be invited to the next bag stuffing event scheduled for April 4th send us an email or a message. If you want to help us by donating supplies we are in need of flannel fabric (for the nursing pads), printer ink, computer paper, disposable nursing pads, breastmilk storage bags and sandwich bags. All can be mailed to AZ breastfeeding Bag Project PO Box 5701, Mesa AZ 85211.

Our hearts are filled with love as we fill each bag, knowing that it is going to help and motivate breastfeeding women in Arizona. This is definitely the best part of our jobs!

Thank you!!!
